In 1994, when Partnoy visited the Jewish Museum in New York for the first time, she became impressed by the images and the rich textures of the ancient religious objects. It was then that she thought that she would need a different material than oil painting to portrait the life of the Jewish people and the stories of the women of the Bible. She chose fabrics to create the collages, more specifically, discarded fabrics she found at some upholstery stores and at dressmakers shops, to tell those stories about dreams, exile, and hopes.

En 1994, cuando Partnoy visitó el Museo Judío en New York por primera vez, quedó impresionada por las imágenes y las ricas texturas de los ancestrales objetos religiosos. Fue entonces que pensó que necesitaría otro material para retratar la vida del pueblo judío y las historias de las mujeres de la biblia. Eligió telas para hacer los collages, más específicamente, telas que encontró en talleres de tapicería y de costura de ropa, para contar aquellas historias sobre exilio y esperanzas.
